Erehui Valley
Mountains-15_zpsnuf75wwt.jpg

Secluded behind the ramparts of the gigantic Erehui Mountains to the west and the Redpeaks to the north, this valley is essentially another world from the harsh desert of Myr Gelyn and rocky scrublands of the Dunlands. Because of its inaccessibility and natural barriers, an entirely distinct Thannish culture has blossomed here over the centuries. The people of the Erehui valley are known locally as the Dust Barbarians. Originally Thannish, they have renounced kings and castles, and live a simple life in their mountain vales and caves. There are few passages between, and even fewer visitors. The Erehui Valley is bordered on the north by the Redpeaks, on the south and west by the Erehui Mountains, and on the East by the Sea of Orel.

In the Second Age, this region was home to a great civilization called the Sultanate of Erehui; An ancient realm located east of the Erehui Mountains. It was later conquered and became a vassal state of Shorafa. Centuries later, the city rebelled and joined with the Tekritian League against Shorafi rule. The Last Sultan of Erehui was slain in this uprising and the city of Erespun destroyed by the Pharoah’s armies. The ruins of Erespun can still be found deep in the valley
